LOOK! The IWC watches and the men who wore them at the 2019 Emmy Awards

The Swiss luxury brand was the favored name on the men’s wrists.

The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards Monday night held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California, will be remembered for many things: the absence of a host, the empowering speech of Pose actor Billy Porter when he won the Lead Actor Emmy (the first openly gay actor to do so), Michelle Williams’ statement on equal pay, and Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner not exactly aware they’re telling a joke—about themselves.

Over at the red carpet, jewel tones and metallic fabrics ruled the occasion — at least in the women’s fashions. Among the men, it was a toss-up between classic tuxedo looks (as shown by Sam Rockwell and Game of Thrones star Kit Harrington, to name two) and more flamboyant choices in both color and fabric (as illustrated by the outfits on Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and James Van Der Beek). But no matter where they swung on the fashion pendulum, these guys kept it right when it came to the one necessary accessory on their wrist. 

Many of the men came to the event wearing premiere selections from the brand IWC, the renowned name in Swiss luxury watches. Looking at the timepieces up close, we dare say they’re quite memorable, too. 

Here they are, for your enjoyment.
